This is just toooo creepy. It is a bit of an instant flash back for me. He spent months of fund raising to block the Satan inspired newspaper attacks against his ministry back in the 80s. He needed $$$$ to hire attorneys to fight the attack. The money poured in as many were afraid that God's annointed was under attack and needed their support.
Your right, this is creepy,watching him work the crowd again.
I feel sorry for those poor people that follow him.I believe their called (Jim's Zombie's).They are lonely in their life and Jim offers them conversation and then takes their wallets.

To the person posting as..."Jaza"
Do you believe Mr. Bakker preaches it just exactly like it is right out of the Bible? Makes no exceptions. Just the facts. Leaves nothing out. Never adding his own opinion to it.
Multiply choice..Choose 1.
A. Yes I do.
B. No I do not.
One is correct and one is incorrect.
Please no theories or commentaries on this question.
Just pick A. or B.
I was young when Jim had is first show. BP (before prison)
and i thought he got in trouble for over-selling condo's. Now I watch his show now (Which is creepy). and I Can asure you that is one big con-man!! He's up there with Ponzie, and Maddox. I also
am wondering if the IRS isn't holding him hostage to do this show
to pay them back the 1.6 million he owes the IRS. The Dude is a Swindler,and he's good at it!!

Jazz, after rent and electricity, I live on $150.00 a month. After tithe at my home church, that leaves $80.00 for food that the stamps don't cover and toilettries, cleaning materials, medical co-pays and other personal items. On good months, I may be able to stick a five dollar bill in an envelope and send that in.
I think we are fasinated with Bakker,because he is a ordinary man like the rest of us .The only difference is we don't go out and bite dogs,Jim goes out and bites dogs and that makes news.

Jim Bakker is a bed wetter. Tammy Faye told me about all the soaked mattresses hidden in a barn in the back of the house.
He saw his new wife (a prostitute)and it was love at first sight.
and Im not being mean ,Lori will tell you,she was a prostitute.
Also, if you were walking in the middle of the Mojova Desert and Jim was there too,he would be selling you a jar of sand for $100.

Can any of you "believers" really think Bakker was "called" to preach world-wide destruction NOW so buy my food? That's goofy!
When you're selling 50 cent cz "Lori" jewerly for 5, 10, 20 dollars and 13 count 25 cent flash lights for $100 that is quite a stretch. Beats me how one finds religious meaning in such "messages". Of course he's "only one going" to preach buy my food today and I'll send you a bottle of KI. Probably his profits do go to his ministry to support his life style and comfy place in life at this time.....and I'm talking condo, vacations, etc.
Religion aside, can you not see this fake (already proven by himself) as feeding off people willing to believe this new "terror" scheme he's into now?
Exuse me,but I think $24 for a jar of peanut butter is a good deal,
but i live in Nome,Alaska

Can we please stick to the facts. The fact is Jim is selling FOOD for you to SURVIVE. And now he is selling generaters for you to SURVIVE because he LOVES YOU! See the bold and you will see love.

Yes, Jaza,

We know you are working for Mr. Jim and are paid by him to advertise here. Now stick to the facts. Jim, if he was a true Christian, would be giving the food away, considering all the donations he gets, if he was truly interested in Christian charity and not making a fast buck off people. Thanks for advertising his freak show on this free forum!

You said it, HE WOULD BE GIVING THE FOOD AWAY! He was a Heretic then and he's still one now. Same thing goes for Ted Haggart, Pat Robinson, Robert Tilton and all the rest of those HEATHEN false Prophets!

My dear departed parents were taken by him for 1,000 dollars also and never seen one night in his palace as he had it so overbooked from selling 1,000 dollar shares of the place which like the fellow said he was sent to prison only to get out and start all over again selling junk he don't have to send people most of the time but he don't send their money back. Just tells them it's coming and it's not his fault as the suppliers are not making the junk he sells fast enough. If you don't have things in stock why don't he do like legitimate companies do and not charge people till they ship the stuff. Not Jim Bakker he cashes their checks and credit cards as fast as he gets them. he has not changed as he is still selling things he don't have in stock yet. If he was a decent man that repented he would be trying to get the money he stole off the elderly at PTL but no he puts everything in his new wife's name. It's a crime. I don't think he will be seeing my mom and dad where he is going unless hen changes his ways. R.J.

I'm sorry to hear that about your parents. This guy professes to believe in God, if he really did, he would not take people for their money like he does because he'd be afraid of the consequences. There's a place reserved for him all right, but it's not what he may be thinking.

If food buckets are not received it is not his fault ok. It is the manufacturers. and it is a love gift and why would you get mad at him if you don't get free things. It is FREE to begin with ok.! He helps so many prepare in the time of tiral.

Check out this link for Jessica Hahn. It's no wonder Jim was playing motorboat with those big floppers. Probably was knocking the bottom out with her in his $14,000 air conditioned dog house that idiots like Jaza helped to pay for, cause Jim's just a good feller (who likes to cornhole his young secretary with huge rockets).

"Falwell called Bakker a liar, an embezzler, a sexual deviant, and "the greatest scab and cancer on the face of Christianity in 2,000 years of church history".

Wow, those are strong words coming from a man of the cloth.

That is a bit too far. Do you know that he is also helping students learn media skills. You can help them and you will even receive a FREE statue for a love gift. Please find it in your hearts to have an open mind and listen to all of the wonderful things. You can do it and when you do I just know you will feel so good about it :')
